Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito are getting ready to open the first Manhattan outpost of Baked, their eight-year-old Red Hook café and bakery, at 279 Church Street. The pair discussed plans for the space, which will have 50 seats and six tables, at the CB1 Tribeca Committee meeting on Wednesday. Tribeca Citizen has a look at a prospective menu of cakes and cookies and Baked bars, and meanwhile, Poliafito and Lewis were approved unanimously to serve beer and wine. They plan to open in the spring of 2014. [Tribeca Citizen, Earlier]
